24/08/1998 British computer scientist Kevin Warwick becomes the first cyborg in history

Warwick was implanted with a simple RFID transmitter beneath skin. He used it to control doors, lights, heaters, and other computer-controlled devices based on his proximity. The main purpose of this experiment was to test the limits of what the body would accept, and how easy it would be to receive a signal from the microprocessor.
